Adrian's Recent Reviews

Quirky, humorous, poignant...I absolutely LOVED this book! Only the most jaded reader will be able to resist falling head-over-heels in love with Eleanor, the socially inept, awkwardly honest, emotionally scarred but resilient & ultimately endearing heroine.
 
 
 
 
American Kingpin in the riveting, informative, fascinating true story of Ross Ulbricht, the 26 year old founder of the Silk Road--a site on the Dark Web where people could buy & sell drugs, forged identities, hacking software, guns & even human organs--& the law enforcement agents who eventually brought him down. What started out as a homegrown operation growing & selling magic mushrooms eventually grew into a 1.2 billion dollar global business all made possible by the emergence of Bitcoin, a virtually untraceable digital currency. This book reads like the best thriller!
